Lancaster University

Gavin Bremner graduated with a B.Sc. in Psychology from St.Andrews University in 1974, and gained his D.Phil. from the University of Oxford in 1978 for work on infants’ spatial orientation.  He obtained his first post at Lancaster University in 1977, and has worked there ever since, becoming Professor of Developmental Psychology in 1994.  Most of his research has been on perceptual and cognitive development in infancy, although he has also investigated spatial and graphical skills in children.  His most recent research has focused largely on perceptual of object persistence in young infants.
